My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Two Fat Ladies' Bubble and Squeak

Remember this show? This recipe is too much fun. I got this last year from Recipezaar, it's recipe number 32216. The fun part is when people ask you what it is, and they will because it really is good. Very English of course. The Brussels sprout haters in your family will never know they are there. When you tell the kids the name of it they will love it.

Two Fat Ladies' Bubble and Squeak
Serves 4
print recipe

1 pound cold cooked potato
2 ounces meat drippings or lard (I usually use bacon grease)
1 onion finely chopped
1/2 pound Brussels sprout, cooked and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Finely chop the potatoes and crush slightly.
2. In a frying pan, melt half the fat and lightly fry the onion.
3. Mix in the potato and sprouts and season well.
4. Add more dripping or lard.
5. Press the potato/sprout mixture into the hot fat and fry over a moderate heat until browned underneath.
6. Turn the veggie mixture over, add the last of the fat and fry until the other side is browned.


  1. Ooooo. This sounds good. I love fried potato and onion in bacon grease and I also love brussels sprouts. Unfortunately I'm the only one in my family on the last one. I love the 2 Fat Ladies though I was watching one of them make meatloaf on the cooking channel the other day and had to change channels. Something about watching her squish that meat ... My friend's husband is English and his version of bubble and squeak has sausage links in it. I enjoyed your post as always.

  2. That sounds yummy!

    I loved that show. Those ladies were the best!
